Mick McCarthy has named his Ireland team for tonight's Euro 2020 Group D qualifier clash with Denmark in Copenhagen.

Despite an excellent season in the Premier League with Wolves, McCarthy has dropped defender Matt Doherty and has opted for Sheffield United striker David McGoldrick to lead the line up front in the absence of the injured Shane Long.

Glenn Whelan, recently released by Aston Villa, partners his former Villa team-mate Conor Hourihane in midfield.

Denmark manager Age Hareide has predictably named a strong side, with Christian Eriksen - a beaten Champions League finalist last Saturday - starting in midfield.

Kick-off at the Parken Stadium is 7.45pm.

Ireland (4-1-4-1): Randolph; Stevens, Duffy, Keogh, Coleman; Whelan; McClean, Hourihane, Hendrick, Brady, McGoldrick.

Denmark (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel; Dalsgaard, Kjaer, Ac, Stryger; Schone, Delaney, Eriksen; Yurary, Braithwaite, N Jorgensen
